We had a wonderful time here. I couldn't believe it but it was as beautiful in real life as in the photos. The hosts are warm and engaging and polite. The breakfast is incredible. Rooms are super clean. Views from upper rooms are stunning. Would happily come back!!!

Christine and Philippe were very attentive, kind and considerate hosts. They made our family truly feel at home and their property is truly historic and in incredible condition. Absolutely beautiful. We feel as if we made friends and will return as soon as we can!

My husband and I stayed in the Balzac room for three nights in October. It was such a wonderful, comfortable stay! All the comforts of modern life in a beautiful 600-year old home. If we ever make another trip to the Loire Valley (so many more chateaus to visit!), we would not hesitate to return to Christine and Philippe's lovely... More

There aren't enough superlatives to describe our stay here. Beautiful, historical, super friendly hosts, extremely comfortable rooms, lovely breakfasts on Gien faience...this was our favorite stay of our 2 weeks in the French countryside. We can't recommend it highly enough and will definitely return for another visit.

A fantastic experience. Wonderful historic house located centrally in the royal city, close to the chateau and the abbey. Great welcome from Christine and Philippe. Our shower located in the circular tower was great fun.
